Let's just say, for the purposes of an example, that I wanted to make a throw pillow that's seven inches square. Now you need to add a half inch to each side (in other words, a whole inch.) That's the size you'll end up cutting your fabric. Mine will end up being eight inches. That gives you enough room to sew around the edges. Cut two pieces of fabric in this size, then place the two right sides together. Pin one side, making sure that the two pieces are secure. Then, using a basic running stitch, sew to the other end one half inch from the edge. Backstitch a few times before ending with a knot. Continue this around two of the other sides, leaving one side open.

Venetian blinds, solid undecorated sheers, and boldly printed or monochromatic curtains are some great trends in contemporary design. Ample sunlight always compliments the clean look of modern home interiors so there is no need to be shy of natural light. Avoiding valances and utilizing crisp modern fabrics is a great start for contemporary window treatments.

The person curls up with it and it is said to be both comfortable and comforting because it is like a boyfriend who can never leave you. Bed pillows will eventually become soiled, through the accumulation of sweat and potentially saliva and of human skin cells. Dust mites live in pillows, feeding on the skin cells that gather and thus 10% of the weight of a two year old pillow may be dust mites, dust mite feces and dead mites.

How many times have you looked in a modern or contemporary home and noticed that it looks a lot like an art gallery? Why not use this effect to it's full potential.

You can use lighting to visually point everyone's eyes towards the piece as soon as they enter the room. You can even arrange the furniture in the room so guests can take a seat and contemplate the beauty in front of them.

Mirrors are a great and often very inexpensive way of really making a definite statement in any room. Use them creatively and your home will look stunning.

The back of the rug, or the knots, as well as the foundation, need to be protected as best as possible. There are rug pads with holes in them and solid rug pads. In this case, the solid on is best. Moving a step ahead, a solid pad with some sort of texture on the surface is even better. This texture can safely grab your antique rug and keep it from crawling, hence reducing wear.
